Medical Biller/Coder : Distance Learning
What is Medical Biller/Coder : Distance Learning?
Medical billers and coders work in hospitals, clinics, doctors offices and insurance companies preparing bills and reimbursements for medical care. They use industry-established numerical codes to indicate what treatments were received, what the diagnosis was and what level of care was given.
To succeed in medical billing and coding, you should be well organized, have excellent communication skills and be detail oriented. You should also be comfortable sitting at a desk for long periods.
If you successfully complete the medical biller/coder certificate, you may pursue a variety of opportunities in hospitals, physician offices, nursing care facilities, outpatient clinics, home health services, insurance companies and public health departments. If you also become certified by the American Health Information Management Association, you will have the best employment options.
